Never grew out of that horse phase

Susan Friedland is just as crazy about horses today as she was running around her yard on a hobby horse as a child. With her decades of experience in the saddle, Susan took her passion for horses and turned it into a self-made career as an equestrian author.

Susan's work has been featured in numerous magazines including Horse Illustrated, Young Rider, and Sidelines Magazine, just to name a few. She's been actively blogging on her award-winning blog, since 2013, co-hosts the Horse Illustrated Barn Banter Podcast, and has done public speaking at Equitana and American Horse Publications Conferences.

Among her work as a writer, she has published four books, with her fifth on the way. When she's not traveling on equestrian adventures, she's trotting around on her OTTB, Tiz A Knight in her home state of Illinois, or wintering in Ocala, FL.
